Standard
WEll today was a day for many questions and many answers.
I will tell you that the specialist was very happy that mom’s levels
were good. They are still trying to get rid of the fluid build up and he
thinks that once he does she will rally and regain some of her strength.
Her breathing will be greatly improved. I was so right to take those
copies to his office. I was also right to call ahead first and ASK.
The office assistant THANKED me for doing so. He  sat
and read all the test results and told us that we had saved money
by bringing them. He did NOT have to do a new blood test. The doctor
here in town does not know the “little tricks” that the specialist does
so he gave us new meds that he hopes will do the job. HE kindly said
“If she has any problem with what I am giving her have her call me!”
I had to chuckle, he does have a good sense of humor. We have known
him for many years. The whole trip wore mom out I must say. It was
the first time she has been gone from home for more than an hour or
so. She has a long recovery in front of her I am afraid to getting back
to where she was.  We hold hope that these meds do the trick!  Smile

As for the pills and the problem of taking them.. I did buy a pill cutter
recently and one of those weekly pill keepers. Trouble is  NOW it is TOO
SMALL. There are so many pills I need a bigger one! Wink Who would have ever
thought it?  Recently I noticed that mom was having troubles with her
shoes. I have been helping her, but I figured there had to be another way.
We stopped by S***RS and got her some new ones on sale. They are
having some great sales in the store trying to get people to shop.
This time she will have her Re****KS and they will have the velcro
closures instead of ties.Light bulb I slipped them on her in the car and said
goodbye to the old ones. She was very happy.. Open-mouthed this surprised me because
she is a creature of habit. Six months ago she would have never even thought
of a velcro closure shoe. One more problem answered. They look pretty good
too. As I checked out I noticed that the whole store had gotten rid of a lot of
it’s checkout counters. Employees were pretty sparce too. I sure hope they
don’t close this store because we go there a lot and it would be a disaster!

We got through the whole day high and dry. NO rain and I was happy.
We saw gas at three stations in the same town for 1.88..1.97…2.09  not
two miles separated the stations! Talk about hunting down the bargain
price. We also saw three cars pulled over by state police and local police
in less than a mile in some kind of a speed trap thing. One cop car on the
bridge with a gun calling in the offenders. Sis laughed and said it must
be the end of the month ticket quota time.  Makes one wonder. Thinking

Well that was our day here..busy for us and answered many questions we had
and we hope for all the right answers too.
 
HOPE YOU ALL
